Can we buy domain names like drupal-xxx.com or drupalxxx.com for selling Drupal related services? Is there some legality issue with it?

Trademark policy

The Drupal Trademark policy is here: http://drupal.com/trademark

As a general rule, if it's for purely non-profit, Drupal-community-improving purposes, you don't need a license for the trademark. If it's a for-profit venture, then you need a trademark license from Dries.

How to apply

Thanks a lot Larry for the link.

Thats a detailed description of what I can use and what needs to be done however what I didn't find was how to apply for the "License Grant Procedure". Do I have to write to Dries or is their some form that needs to be filled? Could you help me with this?
